An original meme
OK - the object is to reveal your everyday terminology for everyday household items and what-not. You may answer with the choices given, or use your own.
TAG! Any and all readers are considered IT.
1. That shiny metal stuff that you use to wrap food with:
A. Aluminum foil / B. Tin foil / C. Reynolds Wrap
Son and I say C. Wife says B.
2. That clear plastic stuff that is also used to wrap food with:
A. Plastic wrap / B. Saran wrap / C. Glad wrap
Wife and I both say A (I used to say C as a kid). Son says B.
3. Those things you use for facial and nasal care:
A. Tissues / B. Kleenex / C. Snot rags
Depends on the company I'm around, I say either A or C. Wife says A and adds "Tissues for your Issues". Son says C.
4. The stringy pasta that you eat with meatballs:
A. Spaghetti / B. P'sghetti / C. Noodles
Son and I say A. Wife blatantly says B.
5. Those wooden sticks you see in a chips bag:
A. Pretzel / B. Prentzel / C. Sticks
6. That mammoth trunked animal in the zoo:
A. Elephant / B. Elly-Phahnt / C. Wooly mammoth
I say A. Wife says B. Son says C.
7. The room in the house you have to use at least once a day:
A. The bathroom / B. The rest room / C. The little boys'/girls' room / D. The can
Both of us use all terms except B, plus others, like "outhouse", "office", and "throne". Wife adds "bait room". Son says D.
8. The paper you use after using the room described in question #7:
A. Toilet paper / B. Bath (or bathroom) tissue / C. Butt wipe
Wife and I both use anything but B. Son says C.
9. Your classification of a passenger van (full-sized or mini), besides van:
A. Car / B. Truck / C. Bus
All three of us say B. (As a former parts worker, I can vouch that vans, including passenger vans, are listed under truck, like "Chevy truck", or "Dodge truck", etc.) However, my son was looking for "tree" as a choice, to be funny.
10. OK, finally, something relating to liturgical music - your classification of a Hammond organ:
A. Instrument / B. Appliance / C. Furniture
Wife says A. I say B. Son says C.
Remember: you're not limited to the choices given.
